On the third date (Wednesday, July 16) of this summer’s “LET ROCK RULE” North American summer tour, AEROSMITH fans saw a special collaboration between the band and good friend Johnny Depp. The performance–at the Xfinity Center in the band’s Boston hometown–featured a guest spot from Depp on the band’s “Train Kept a-Rollin.” Depp last performed the song with the band at their August 2012 sold-out Hollywood Bowl show in Los Angeles.
“LET ROCK RULE,” this summer’s definitive rock experience, features rock’s most lethal army–Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Joey Kramer, Tom Hamilton, and Brad Whitford–and special guest SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. The tour kicked off Thursday, July 10 at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre in Wantagh, NY and will make stops in Los Angeles, CA (The Forum), San Francisco, CA (Sleep Train Pavilion), Chicago (First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre), Denver, CO (Pepsi Center), Dallas, TX (American Airlines Center) and Atlanta, GA (Phillips Arena) before wrapping Friday, September 12 in Sydney, NS, Canada (Open Hearth Park).
AEROSMITH—Steven Tyler (vocals), Joe Perry (lead guitar), Brad Whitford (guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass) and Joey Kramer (drums)–are a living piece of American music history, having sold over 150 million albums worldwide and been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They are the recipients of countless awards including four GRAMMYs, eight American Music Awards, six Billboard Awards and 12 MTV Video Music Awards among many other honors. Their latest honors include the 2013 ASCAP Founders Award and induction into the Songwriter Hall of Fame at the 44thannual SHOF ceremony also in 2013. MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION! (Columbia), the band’s latest album, was released in late 2012. Proving that they can cross genre-boundaries with ease, these rock legends have even taken home a Soul Train Award for Best Rap Single for their remix of Run DMC’s “Walk This Way.” With scores of multi-platinum albums, AEROSMITH continues to inspire generations to get their wings, get a grip and just push play. It is no wonder why they are one of the most beloved bands of all time.
